For many years, BOTOX® has been one of the top cosmetic procedures, and since it’s such a popular treatment, there are many myths surrounding it. Despite the lack of evidence, many people believe these myths and develop false assumptions about the treatment. Once the myths have been debunked, you’ll have several great reasons to consider getting these injections.
A common myth about BOTOX® injections is that they’re unbearable, but if you were to ask most patients, they’d tell you the treatment is actually pretty tolerable.
Another common myth is that BOTOX® is an invasive treatment, but since it’s not actually a form of plastic surgery, this myth has been debunked. The non-surgical injection treatment takes only minutes to complete and doesn’t require anesthesia.
Some people believe the myth that BOTOX® is unsafe. However, since it has been used to treat millions of patients, it’s safe to say that this myth has been debunked. The treatment is even approved by the FDA to treat certain types of wrinkles, so you can be sure it is safe.
A common myth is that this treatment is only for women, but the truth is that it’s useful men and women alike.
Some people believe that BOTOX® is completely unnatural, and they think it’s filled with harmful chemicals. The truth is that it is a purified protein solution. In the United States, it has been approved for treating frown lines, and the safety of the formula has been tested.
Another popular myth is that BOTOX® will make it impossible for you to show emotions, and according to the myth, you’ll end up with a face that looks plastic or frozen. This myth is false, and it was created by people who exaggerated the effects of the formula.
Before getting treated with this injectable solution, some people believe the myth that BOTOX® will eliminate all of their fine lines and wrinkles. This myth isn’t always true, but the treatment can help you significantly lessen the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
According to another popular myth, the results from BOTOX® are permanent. The truth is that the results are not permanent, and for most patients, the effects will last for multiple months. The good news is you can maintain the results with maintenance treatments at our office.
Yet another misconception about BOTOX® is that the results are visible immediately after the treatment session. This is not true, as it takes multiple days for the lines and wrinkles to start to fade.
According to another popular myth, this treatment is only good for cosmetic purposes. The truth is that it is used by some medical professionals to treat certain medical conditions as well.
